Cotton Mather
Samuel Gerrish. Ratio Disciplinae Fratrum Nov-Anglorum. A Faithful Account of the Account of the Discipline Prosessed and Practised; in the Churches of New-England. With Interspersed and Instructive Reflections on the Discipline of the Primitive Churches. MATHER, COTTONBoston: Printed for S. Gerrish in Cornhill, 1726. A fantastically original copy of one of Cotton Mather's most important works, and an "important exposition of the tenets of Congregationalism that carefully reaffirms the principles of the CAMBRIDGE PLATFORM" (Streeter). Cotton Mather FRS (February 12, 1663 - February 13, 1728; A.B. 1678, Harvard College; A.M. 1681, honorary doctorate 1710, University of Glasgow) was a socially and politically influential New England Puritan minister, prolific author, and pamphleteer. He left a scientific legacy due to his hybridization experiments and his promotion of inoculation for disease prevention, though he is most frequently remembered today for his involvement in the Salem Witch Trials. He was subsequently denied the presidency of Harvard College which his father, Increase Mather, had held. Holmes reveals that although published in 1726, the work was actually written in 1701, quoting from Mather's diary from October 3 of that year: "About this Time I finished a Work, which cost me much Time, and Care and Study. I wrote in a Book of above an hundred pages in Quarto, an account of the Principles and Practices of the Churches of New England. But I embellished it all along, with a further Account of what was done in the primitive Churches, which required some exquisite la … [Click Below for Full Description]

Swift, Jonathan
Benj. Motte, London, 1726. Mixed early first editions of Johnathan Swift's masterpiece, Gulliver's Travels. Volume I is a Teerink AA edition, Volume II Teerink B edition. Octavo, bound in contemporary calf, engraved frontispiece, woodcut initials, five engraved maps, gilt titles to the spine. In near fine condition. A very nice example of this classic in English literature. Jonathan Swift's masterpiece will "last as long as the language, because it describes the vices of man in all nations" (DNB). "A remarkable feat in the creation of imaginary worlds as a vehicle for satire upon the political and religious establishments of the day" (Clute & Grant, 914). "Gulliver's Travels has given Swift an immortality beyond temporary fame". For every edition designed for the reader with an eye to the historical background, 20 have appeared, abridged or adapted, for readers who care nothing for the satire and enjoy it as a first-class story" (PMM 185). "Of all Swift's writings it best shows the merits of his mind and his gifts of expression". It is important to realize that it could be written only by one who had the highest ideals for human achievement and who despaired of the achieving" (Baugh et al., 865-66)"although Swift himself expressed this hope for his "Travells" to a friend: "They are admirable Things, and will wonderfully mend the world" (Rothschild 2104).

Shelvocke, George (1675-1742)
Printed for J. Senex; W. and J. Innys, J. Osborn and T. Longman, 1726. First Edition. Hardcover. "Captains Shelvocke and Clipperton led a privately financed privateering expedition to attack Spanish shipping. Shelvocke gave his superior officer the slip in a storm and proceeded to Brazil and thence to the west coast of South America, where in two months he sacked Payta, Peru, and captured several small prizes. His vessel, the Speedwell, was wrecked at Juan Fernandez Island, but a ship was built out of the wreckage, and he sailed up the coast to Baja California. After crossing the Pacific via Guam and Macao, Shelvocke returned to England, where he was accussed of piracy and embezzlement, and then acquitted. He soon left for the Continent a wealthy man. Shelvocke wrote this account, in part, as a vindication of his conduct. In it he mentions the gold of California and the guano of Peru, more than a hundred years before their rediscovery in the 19th century. An incident in the narrative describing the passage around Cape Horn, in which a sailor kills an albatross, is said to have inspired Coleridge's Rime of the Ancient Mariner" (Hill 1557). 468 p. with a folding world map that depicts California as an island, four plates (two folding), title page vignette, and decorative head and tail pieces, and initials. Octavo. In a period one-half black calf over marbled paper binding, with gilt stamping and five raised bands. An ink presentation inscription from C.J. Capron to C.H.W. Capron of California on a prefatory blank leaf is dated May 1841. A bit of foxing to the plates, the pref … [Click Below for Full Description]

Shelvocke also discusses the economic potential of guano and whaling in the Pacific, as well as making tantalizing references to gold on the coast of California.

Cotton Mather
Samuel Gerrish. Ratio Disciplinae Fratrum Nov-Anglorum. A Faithful Account of the Account of the Discipline Prosessed and Practised; in the Churches of New-England. With Interspersed and Instructive Reflections on the Discipline of the Primitive Churches. MATHER, COTTONBoston: Printed for S. Gerrish in Cornhill, 1726. A fantastically original copy of one of Cotton Mather's most important works, and an "important exposition of the tenets of Congregationalism that carefully reaffirms the principles of the CAMBRIDGE PLATFORM" (Streeter). Cotton Mather FRS (February 12, 1663 - February 13, 1728; A.B. 1678, Harvard College; A.M. 1681, honorary doctorate 1710, University of Glasgow) was a socially and politically influential New England Puritan minister, prolific author, and pamphleteer. He left a scientific legacy due to his hybridization experiments and his promotion of inoculation for disease prevention, though he is most frequently remembered today for his involvement in the Salem Witch Trials. He was subsequently denied the presidency of Harvard College which his father, Increase Mather, had held. Holmes reveals that although published in 1726, the work was actually written in 1701, quoting from Mather's diary from October 3 of that year: "About this Time I finished a Work, which cost me much Time, and Care and Study. I wrote in a Book of above an hundred pages in Quarto, an account of the Principles and Practices of the Churches of New England. But I embellished it all along, with a further Account of what was done in the primitive Churches, which required some exquisite la … [Click Below for Full Description]

Glanvill first wrote on the subject of supernatural phenomena in A Philosophical Endeavour towards the Defence of the Being of Witches and Apparitions in 1666. The impression was largely destroyed in the same year by the Great Fire of London, and thus a new edition of the work appeared the following year under the title Some Philosophical Considerations Touching the Being of Witches. In 1668 an enlarged edition was printed, and this too went through two impressions, now entitled A Blow at Modern Sadducism. At the time of his death in 1680, Glanvill had for several years been planning an expanded version of A Blow at Modern Sadducism, including reports of cases h … [Click Below for Full Description]

AUGUSTINO CALMET
Venice and Lucca: Sebastian Colet and Leonardo Venturini, 1726. 4 volumes, folio, including the 2 volume supplement (Lucca, 1731), vignette title pages in first two volumes, titles printed in red and black in the supplement, woodcut initials throughout, text in double column, 4 engraved folding maps (two of the Holy Land, 1 of the eastern Mediterranean basin, 1 of Babylon), folding plan of the ancient city of Jerusalem, 13 engraved plates, primarily of Jewish antiquities, 4 engraved numismatic plates; contemporary full paste-paper boards (soiled), uncut, manuscript titling on spine; some mild dampstaining, top of the spine of the first volume with a thumbnail-size chip out, but generally a good, sound set, or better. Calmet (1672-1757) was a French Benedictine scholar and teacher of philosophy and theology. "The erudition of Calmet's exegetical writings won him a reputation that was not confined to the Roman Catholic Church, but they have failed to stand the test of modern scholarship... His Dictionnaire historique is among the most noteworthy [and] as a pioneer in a branch of Biblical study, which received wide development in the 19th century, Calmet is worthy of remembrance" (EB-11). Calmet was the first to refrain from giving allegorical interpretations, confining himself to only the literal. This Latin translation is by Giovanni Dominico Mansi (1692-1769). The work was originally published in French in 2 volumes in 1722, and the supplement in 1728. The present set combines the second Latin edition of the first two volumes, and the first Latin edition of the supplement. … [Click Below for Full Description]

An uncommon and significant work on the language of the Aztecs and other speakers of Nahuatl; Vázquez, a native of Puebla, was a professor of the "Mexican language" (i.e., Nahuatl) at the Royal College of San Juan and San Pedro and his local "take" is discernible here. This is the third edition, the first having appeared in 1689 and a second in 1693; a third edition of 1716 is listed in several bibliographies, but it is a ghost: (The "2" in the date of this 1726 edition is often indistinct on the title-page, causing some to read it as "1716").

INDIA – MAHÉ (MALABAR COAST) ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT MAP - A finely drafted original manuscript that his one of the earliest known maps of Mahé, France’s only outpost on India’s Malabar Coast, providing it with its sole direct access to black pepper, then a globally important commodity; specifically, the map showcases the dramatic French military operation in December 1725, led by the legendary Bertrand-Francois Mahé de La Bourdonnais, to recapture Mahé after it was briefly seized by a local potentate. This fine original manuscript is one of the earliest surviving maps of Mahé, an important location, being France’s only base along the Malabar Coast and its sole direct connection to the source of black pepper, then a precious commodity. Mahé (originally called ‘Mayé’ by the French) was founded in 1724, when the French East India Company (the ‘Compagnie’) built a small fort at the mouth of the Mayyazhi River. The Compagnie had recently leased the site from the local ruler, Raja Vazhunnavar of Badagara, a notorious pirate, known in French as the ‘Bayanor’. The British East Indian Company, which maintained a base in nearby Tellicherry, deeply resented the French presence and managed to convince Vazhunnavar to renege on his agreement and to forcibly evict the French from Mahé, which was accomplishe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Traduite en français la même année que l'originale, elle fut réimprimée en 1767. "C'est dans le burlesque que M. Zacharia s'est acquis la plus grande réputation.

Il chante ici les avantures d'un Matou, ce qui lui est arrivé sur terre, dans les enfers et aux champs Elisées. Le principal mérite de cet auteur, est de sçavoir joindre à des images hardies, des traits naïfs et satyriques" (Annales Typographiques, 1757).

Shelvocke, George (1675-1742)
London: Printed for J. Senex; W. and J. Innys, J. Osborn and T. Longman, 1726. "Captains Shelvocke and Clipperton led a privately financed privateering expedition to attack Spanish shipping. Shelvocke gave his superior officer the slip in a storm and proceeded to Brazil and thence to the west coast of South America, where in two months he sacked Payta, Peru, and captured several small prizes. His vessel, the Speedwell, was wrecked at Juan Fernandez Island, but a ship was built out of the wreckage, and he sailed up the coast to Baja California. After crossing the Pacific via Guam and Macao, Shelvocke returned to England, where he was accussed of piracy and embezzlement, and then acquitted. He soon left for the Continent a wealthy man. Shelvocke wrote this account, in part, as a vindication of his conduct. In it he mentions the gold of California and the guano of Peru, more than a hundred years before their rediscovery in the 19th century. An incident in the narrative describing the passage around Cape Horn, in which a sailor kills an albatross, is said to have inspired Coleridge's Rime of the Ancient Mariner" (Hill 1557). 468 p. with a folding world map that depicts California as an island, four plates (two folding), title page vignette, and decorative head and tail pieces, and initials. Octavo. In a period one-half black calf over marbled paper binding, with gilt stamping and five raised bands. An ink presentation inscription from C.J. Capron to C.H.W. Capron of California on a prefatory blank leaf is dated May 1841. A bit of foxing to the plates, the prefatory and concludi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Beringer, J. B. A.
Würzburg, Philipp Wilhelm Fuggart, 1726. Folio (32.5 x 20.8 cm). Finely engraved frontispiece. [x], 96 pp., 21 engraved plates. Contemporary half calf over speckled boards. Spine with five raised, gilt-bordered bands; brown morocco label with gilt ornamental bands and title. Edges speckled red.= A contemporary bound copy of the very rare true first edition of this remarkable work by the German professor of geology, Johann Bartholomeus Adam Beringer (ca. 1667-1738), which was based on what may be regarded as the first palaeontological fraud. The "fossil" stones, with fantastic images of reptiles, frogs, stars, comets, insects, soft-bodied creatures like snails, Latin and Hebrew texts, etc., etc. were planted in a mountain near Wurzburg for Beringer to be found. It is still a mystery who was behind this hoax. Beringer's colleagues Johann Georg von Eckhart, and Jean Ignase Roderique have been named, even sentenced, but the latter was not in Würzburg yet when the hoax started. Some believe that Beringer knew from the beginning that the stones were fake, but quite probably he only saw the truth after receiving a stone with his own name on it, written in Hebrew. Ever since, these stones are known as the Würzburger Lügensteine (lying stones of Würzburg). Beringer went to ends to protect his status by retrieving all the copies he could find. However, he did not destroy them and after his death they resurfaced. With a new title page they were sold again, making a small fortune for Beringer's heirs, nearly 30 years after Beringer's death. Our copy does not include a short work by Geo … [Click Below for Full Description]
